I’m from Kiashke Zaaging Anishinaabek  residing in Thunder Bay, Ontario. I’m currently working on my Honours Bachelor in Social Work with a major  concentration in Indigenous learning. I joined YRI to be a part of a movement, a movement that actively works towards change and towards  building meaningful and honest relationships between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples.

Hello, my name is Pamela Angees. I am from Wunnumin Lake First Nation, part of the Robinson-Superior territory and under Treaty 9. I live in Thunder Bay, ON. I joined YRI so that I can help build reconciliation between Indigenous and non-Indigenous people in Thunder Bay. My goal in life is to increase the health status of Indigenous people, and YRI is a great opportunity and experience that will help me works towards that goal.
